Fuyuki Yamakawa, artist, performer and musician, he is known for the extreme intensity of his happenings based on the peculiar technique of “Khoomei” throat music, a popular brooding form of singing from Tuva (Central Asia) and characterized by diplophonia (the simultaneous emission of two sounds, requiring total control of breathing.) From this method of singing, in which he is recognized internationally, he has developed happenings based on amplified sounds and notably the heartbeat using an electronic stethoscope. With all his artistic endeavours, he aims to push the limits of art, through his own bodily space. At the same time, he creates visual and sound installations, as well as performances in collaboration with artists from very different disciplines (dance, fashion, cinema, radio). Since the Fukushima disaster, his work has been marked by strong social criticism.
